The purpose of this review and reflection article was to present the theoretical and instrumental model to identify and promote learning patterns (Vermunt, 1998). This model integrates beliefs, motivation and strategies in the analysis of learning processes. It arose with a clear conception of the role of background and personal factors in the discussion of its goals, and the configuration of the patterns (Vermunt, 2005). Scientifically speaking, it is a recent model that has been revised by Vermunt and some of his colleagues (Vermunt & Donche, 2017; Vermunt & Vermetten, 2004). In this review, the authors go back to those contributions and describe the model and its history. After a brief presentation of its use in Ibero-America, they present a state of the art of learning patterns in this region. Finally, they discuss the potentialities, weaknesses and perspectives of learning patterns. All in all, there is an analysis of the role played by learning environments, previous knowledge, age, gender, and culture to understand the prevalence of some ways to learn, grow, conceive, and act with information.
